Todman is an explosive back that can break runs outside because of his straight line speed and burst.Â He isnâ€™t considered an inside runner but has the ability to find a crease or lane to knife through and is surprisingly effective between the tackles.
Despite his size, Todman is a downhill runner that can withstand contact, break tackles and constantly gives the extra effort to churn out the tough yards.Â He is a very reliable ball carrier, only losing three fumbles on his 658 career touches.
Todman has reliable hands but isnâ€™t an experienced route runner and can struggle some in pass protection due to his size.Â He often left the field on third downs and obvious passing situations but he has skill blocking in pass protection and will improve in this area.
The Huskies runningback is a try hard overachiever that was able to take on a heavy amount of carries at Connecticut and appeared to thrive in that role.Â He isn’t great laterally and while he can make defenders miss, he won’t string multiple moves together on any one play.
While Todman might not be an every-down back right away in the NFL, he could certainly develop into a steady contributor in the right offensive system.Â Look for him to start in a committee but emerge as “the guy” once a team gets a chance to see how he responds to a lot of carries.
